Our Program for Troubled Teens
All too often, troubled teenagers who are at risk are sequestered to a program at a protected facility where they attend meetings and therapy sessions to overcome their challenges. As a Catholic boarding school and adolescent residential treatment center, Trinity Teen Solutions has found that young women who attend such programs, quickly fall back into old behaviors once they return home. This is generally for two reasons; first, girls don’t know how to adapt to their newfound life skills to their old environments. Second, they have a spiritual void in their lives which they attempt to fill with things other than God. To speak with a Family Advocate, please call 307-202-8400. Otherwise, continue reading.
Trinity’s Program Works in the Real World Because They are Taught in the Real World
Living and working at Trinity’s Catholic boarding school gives your daughter a safe retreat in a loving environment where the negative distractions that previously influenced her are eliminated. At the same time, she will learn to function in a real-world family setting, making the adjustment from Trinity to home much smoother.
“What do your programs for troubled teens consist of?”
Through a variety of specifically developed programs for teenagers at risk, we ask your daughter to identify and solve her problems. That process, in our view, is half of what it takes to become a healthy person.
Through several programs (including animal and wilderness therapy, experiential family therapy and other forms of therapy), your child will begin to return to the loving, gentle person she used to be… mind, body and soul.
Mindset Changes and Challenges Program
Programs for troubled teens teach girls about bonding relationships.
While living at Trinity’s Catholic boarding school, your daughter has the benefit of temporarily leaving the negative distractions and pressures of life behind. This frees her to focus on finding herself and discovering who she is through Christ.
The Mindset Changes and Challenges Program takes teens at risk and encourages changes in their behavior. In order for her to gain privileges, your child needs to work honestly on the behaviors, attitudes and issues that are forcing you to seek treatment for her.
Once she is successful, your daughter will grow self-worth and dignity that will allow her to do the painstaking task of looking honestly inward. With the emotional growth that occurs, she will be able to soften her heart and let down all the barriers that have prevented her from looking inward and achieving healing.
“Does the entire program consist of mind work?”
The mind isn’t the only area of your daughter’s total person that we work on. Our philosophy about troubled teens is to provide each one with appropriate therapy for her mind, body and soul.
All of Trinity’s programs require your daughter to develop virtues by a measurable change in her behavior and attitude. We also offer quality nutrition specifically designed for teens at risk. Likewise, we work on your child’s spiritual development, increasing her inner strength and peace.
We require her to examine her conscience moment to moment, and we observe progress daily. We also review her overall progress towards our treatment goals weekly. We require your daughter to grow in virtues such as patience, mercy, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, respect, motivation, honesty, self-control and responsibility. As she practices these, she will internalize these characteristics as her own.
If you didn’t want the best for your daughter, you wouldn’t be researching programs for troubled teens. With the decision to get help comes questions. We’d be glad to speak with you by phone or to receive an email from you. Contact us today to receive more information on helping your daughter successfully conquer the battles she’s fighting. There is hope at Trinity Teen Solutions. Please call 307-202-8400 for more information.
